Casey Stoner slams Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha return

Casey Stoner has criticised Valentino Rossi’s swift return to Yamaha after the Italian legend recently confirmed he will quit Ducati after a disastrous two-year stint with the Bologna factory. The 33-year-old has been a shock failure to perform on board a factory Desmosedici and will return to Yamaha next season to partner bitter Spanish rival Jorge Lorenzo. When Rossi arrived at Ducati...

I'm Pretty sure that Casey's motives are that he is sick of having to put up with twats the likes of you... Not all people are content to sit at home in their bed and judge the world from a keyboard. Some go out there and actually get it done. 

He's also probably tired of people relentlessly backing Rossi publicly for the last 2 years when he's done absolutely f*#k all. 

He's probably sick of all his achievements being been credited to the bike... the same bike that Rossi couldn't ride (and has now completely fucked up) which was claimed to be the reason for all of his wins (go figure)? 

Maybe this is his final chance to call it the way he sees it, and judging by the length of this debate in comments, it's well overdue. 

He's a better rider than Rossi (right now), so is Lorenzo. We can talk about championships till the cows come home but the truth is (as hard is it may be), is that Rossi is sadly moving into the realms of Doohan, and Rainey and Schwantz et al. He Should leave now before he becomes another Lawson (no insult intended to Lawson fans). 

Who are these "seething masses" you refer to? From What I see, it's the same 15 or so regular "Rossi" posters that seem to pop up everywhere on these boards.

I'm also quite keen to know on what basis you feel you have the right to judge any WORLD CHAMPION as a discrace. 

Please feel free to list your world championships to give credit to this statement.

Wow....not good for the MotoGP brand... I like Stoner's grit and the recent, complementarty Matt Oxley and Bike article explains a lot of his chippiness....but this rant was ill advised.

Stoner's outburst is exactly the reason that people can't take to him - personally I can't stand the po-faced whining little c***t - but - having said that MotoGP will be the poorer for his departure!

Strike and counter strike

Stoner vs Rossi is going to be missed on the forums next year.  Best we call it a draw.

Competing on the same level and resultant championship standings sees Rossi 3 to 2 over Stoner. That being 2008,2009 and 2010 to Stoner's 2007 and 2011. 2012 should see Stoner draw level. I'm talking prototype within a full factory team.

Remind me of 2006 and I will be forced to invoke the 23 - 0 Ducati amendment to adress the 2nd tier LCR Honda/Michelin scenario.

Truce says I. Both greats of there respective era's.

Generosity of spirit is something you will find in George Lorenzo. Welcomes Rossi back to M1 cottton wool.

Mind you,like a scorpion he's merely embracing his prey with outstretched arms before sticking the needle in.

Do you remember?

Do you remember this article? It is an absolute gem!

MCN: How would you feel about stepping back to Yamaha and being with Jorge again?

Rossi: “My feeling has changed a lot because the situation has changed. I had some problems in the past with Jorge, especially because I was angry with Yamaha. After all I did for Yamaha they put in the team a very strong team-mate so I was p****d off with Yamaha more than him. Now it is a different situation and I understand that Yamaha made the right choice for Yamaha. This is not a big problem.”

Oh, the drama....

Not sure which is more entertaining, Stoner throwing Rossi's words back in his face or you lot on MCN bashing each other, claiming intellectual superioriy and looking for others' agreements and acceptance.  Kind of like competing in the special olympics.  Even if you win, you're still retarded.

I fear that if Rossi does not perform to his previous level on the Yamaha then his career could well finish on a low. This would be a real shame as without doubt he has entertained motorcycle racing fans for many years during his winning times. What he needs to remember is the age old saying "the grass ain't always greener on the other side of the fence"

amazing rider

Casey is an amazing rider and if he had Rossis commitment and enthusiasm and carisma  he could have become one of the greats such as doohan or Gardner. Instead he has alianated most of the general public by his constant whinging, arogance and disrigard for fellow riders and the sport in general. The reasons why he is retiring are 2 fold one he is a family man and wants to spend more time with them which i respect.Two.. If he doesnt win the race he cant take it . I looked at him when he won Laguna  and he was bathing in glory (it was a really good win) but when he looses he acts like a spoilt brat. I am sure if their wasnt a certian rider Lorenzo beating him most weeks he wouldnt be retiring

So before he starts criticizing Rossi it would be nice if he looked at how he has acted in  the past. Good luck in his retirement though but i have a feeling he will be back hopefully acting like a mature adult.
